EMMA MUSTAFA, FROM LONDON

EMMA MUSTAFA

 

Hello, my name is Emma and I have been the language assistant for this academic year.I really enjoyed my time in this school as an assistant. Everyone was very kind and welcoming to me which I appreciated. In particular the students, who were also for the most part very focused and tried their best. Thank you for the many conversations. I also found the range of subjects very interesting, albeit challenging at times.  This definitely confirmed my love of words over numbers.


Furthermore, I feel lucky to have been placed in the city of Malaga. It has been a great place to live,especially when the sun is out, and a very easy place to live, and travel from. I will remember this time fondly.
Overall, thanks so much to all of the teachers and students that I worked with, and best of luck for the future.

INNOVATIVE ENGLISH LEARNERS

eTwinning project INNOVATIVE ENGLISH LEARNERS (1º ESO A)


Las llamadas herramientas digitales se han convertido en un aliado fundamental de la enseñanza en el presente contexto de pandemia. Durante el pasado confinamiento a causa de la pandemia COVID el profesorado notó que la tecnología estaba presente en gran parte de nuestra vida diaria, especialmente en términos de educación. En la educación a distancia, experimentamos una nueva forma de aprender y enseñar digitalmente. Nos dimos cuenta de que el uso de nuevas herramientas en la materia “Inglés” nos ayudó a motivar a nuestros estudiantes y a aprender mejor la lengua extranjera. En este proyecto, nuestro objetivo era ayudar a nuestros estudiantes en el proceso de aprendizaje guiándolos en la creación de material digital a través de herramientas Web 2.0 creativas y fáciles de usar.

El proyecto empezó en octubre 2021 y terminó en abril de 2022. Grupos de estudiantes de edades comprendidas entre los 10 y 14 años, procedentes de diferentes escuelas europeas de educación primaria y secundaria (España, Francia, Portugal y Turquía) colaboraron para crear distintos productos con objetivo de desarrollar sus competencias y destrezas sociales-cívicas, lingüísticas y digitales. Se fomentó la creatividad realizando tareas que implicaban el uso de la lengua extranjera y de distintas herramientas digitales.
During the pandemic we noticed that technology is a big part of our daily lives especially in terms of education. In distance learning, we experienced a new way of digital learning and teaching. We realized that using new tools in English helped us to motivate our students and learn English better. In this project we aim to assist our students learning process by guiding them to create digital material through creative easy-to-use Web 2.0 tools.

Video con resumen de todas las actividades desarrolladas durante el año académico.
TAREA FINAL DEL PROYECTO (FINAL TASK)
The Youtube video below shows some of our students reading an Acrostic poem.
An acrostic is a poem or other composition in which the first letter (or syllable, or word) of each line (or paragraph, or other recurring feature in the text) spells out a word, message or the alphabet. Text Atribution (Wikipedia)
In our case, the poem spells out the name of our eTwinning Project "Innovative English Learners".
This collaborative poem is the final result and it is a good feeling. Thank you all dear partners (teachers and students).
Congras to Pablo and Iván from Spain since they did it very well!!! Proud of you boys! :D

e-Twinning PROJECT: LET'S WRITE EUROPEAN LEGENDS

Let's Write European Legends!

Los grupos 2º ESO C y 2º ESO F ,con su profesora Raquel Silvente Mallo, participan junto con alumnado de Francia, Bélgica, Croacia y Rumanía en el proyecto e-Twinning “Let’s Write European Legends”, que tiene como objetivo fomentar el hábito lector, el conocimiento de otras culturas, la escritura y la creatividad. El proyecto empezó en Octubre 2021 y terminará en Junio de 2022. La lengua inglesa es el código lingüístico común para comunicarse y colaborar en la elaboración de los productos finales. Los siguientes videos muestran el desarrollo de una de las tareas del proyecto en la que el alumnado ha leído en clase una leyenda sobre fantasmas escocesa ("Jane of George Street, Edinburgh" by Elliot O'Donnell) y la ha resumido de forma visual.
European students from Spain (2º ESO C and 2º ESO F), France, Belgium, Croatia and Romania are taking part in this e-Twinning Project called "Let's Write European Legend". The main goal is to foster the reading and writing habits, raise intercultural awareness and promoting creativity and thinking skills.  We will write a collection of European Legends.
The first step of the project is to get to know each other. The second step is to learn more about Scotland, its history, geography, culture and its ghost stories. We'll engage in collaborative activities and challenges all along the learning process. We'll also train students in collaborative writing following the Scottish example. Finally, we'll start exchanging about our own countries or region legends and myths, to then use this knowledge to write our European legends in international teams.
Here are some videos about the activity 5: Scotland and Ghost Stories. 
After doing some cooperative research -together with our European partners- about such a wonderful country as Scotland (task "Discover Scotland"), we went on reading a Scottish legend by Elliot O'Donnell. We chose to read "Jane of George Street, Edinburgh" a great story about the "poor distracted spirit" of a woman.
 
Once we read the story, we put crayons to paper and we created some visual recaps of this captivating ghost story.

May 17th

 MAY 17th  International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.

 



The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia was created in 2004 to draw the attention to the violence and discrimination experienced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex people and all other people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.

The date of May 17th was specifically chosen to commemorate the World Health Organization’s decision in 1990 to declassify homosexuality as a mental disorder.
The Day represents a major global annual landmark to draw the attention of decision makers, the media, the public, corporations, opinion leaders, local authorities, etc. to the alarming situation faced by people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities or expressions, and sex characteristics.

May 17 is now celebrated in more than 130 countries, including 37 where same-sex acts are illegal. Thousands of initiatives, big and small, are reported throughout the planet. Here you can see some pictures of the project done by students of the second year of Basic Vocational Training in our school. The shoes have been made by these students and students of the first year of BSC.

e-Twinning PROJECT: PLASTIC PANIC!!!

El grupo 1º ESO F,liderado por su profesora, Raquel Silvente Mallo, participa junto con alumnado de Italia, Francia, Polonia y Turquía en el proyecto e-Twinning “Plastic Panic”, que tiene como objetivo concienciar al alumnado sobre un problema ecológico: la contaminación de los mares/océanos causada por los residuos plásticos. El proyecto empezó en Octubre 2021 y terminará en Junio de 2022. La lengua inglesa es el código lingüístico común para comunicarse y colaborar en la elaboración de los productos finales. Los siguientes videos muestran el desarrollo de una de las tareas del proyecto en la que el alumnado ha realizado una investigación sobre los plásticos y después ha plasmado en forma visual sobre un mural de papel contínuo sus hallazgos sobre cuatro subtemas 

-What are plastics? (¿Qué son los plásticos?)

-Where do they come from? (Origen)

-Plastic Advantages (Ventajas)

-Plastic Dangers (Peligros)

-Plastics: Everyday Solutions (Soluciones cotidianas)

-Plastics: Solutions in each country (Soluciones en cada país)


The best waste is the one that is never produced. Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues of our modern societies as the conveniences plastics offer led to a throw-away culture that reveals the material’s dark side. Every year, about 8 million tons of plastic waste end up in oceans, which is harming animals and possibly human life. (source: National Geographic) Can it be changed?
This yearly project is aimed at promoting sustainable development through the school year thanks to varied activities and active communication with European schools. It is also aimed at developing awareness on the overconsumption of plastic and the damage it causes to our environment.
We are optimistic that young generations are the key to finding practical and easy solutions to protect our environment as it has become urgent to change our everyday habits to face the plastic pollution crisis.
The project starting date will be October 2021 and it will last until June 2022. Groups of 10-14 years-old students from different European secondary and primary schools (France, Italy, Spain and Romania/Turkey) will cooperate to create different final products. They will exchange information about themselves, their schools and their environment; and they will share their opinions, and products on different aspects of plastic pollution. The English language will be the common code for communication.

Here you can watch some videos illustrating the task "Plastic Research" This task has been a complex and challenging task for our students.They have been asked to conduct research about a technical/scientific matter (Where do plastics come from? What are plastics? Advantages; Dangers, Everyday solutions and Solutions in each country) and at the same time do this research in English (a second language). It has taken time to do it: almost two months, research work and creative work included. After doing research about plastics, students were asked to transform their theoretical findings into a final product: an infography. They had to transform textual information into visual clues and keywords. A challenging task for them. We have worked on an extra-big size wallpaper to create these visual schemes.
